    Every so often when listening to music I imagine how it is played -- and recently I've heard a few examples of something like what you hear in the 12th second of the following clip, and again at the 35th second:

    I wonder is there a name for this sound/effect? Does it depend on more that one trumpet to work?

    Thanks,

    Sounds like a fast shake to me.

    or a fast trill ... i couldn't pull off a shake that fast. Listening to that piece I am thinking it is a whole lot harder to play then it sounds right off..

    Fast shake or lip trill - that'll be 2 cents, please.

    that is a fast shake.. the other one seems a bit quicker ... maybe I will put it on my Protools and really slow it down...

    Thanks guys - I think I agree it's a shake now too - but certainly faster than I can do it (yet) and I like the control the player(s) has(have). Another song by Mnozil Brass ("Frater Septimus Crux None..." from their "What Are You Doing With The Rest Of Your Life" CD) includes a similar sound, and so I suppose that indicates the expert skill level players who can do can just casually employ.

    I find the Charles Colin flexibility studies are good training for shakes (as lip trills), and judicious use of a rapid increase/decrease of pressure can make for some pretty good sounding rapid shakes even in the staff. Comes in handy for section work.
